The Global Philadelphia Association and the Kleinman Center invite you to FDR Park for the unveiling of a new piece of public art painted by Penn student Eliza Nobles. This 10x10-foot painting explores UN Sustainability Goal #7: affordable clean energy for all, and is part of a city-wide public art exhibition that will feature 17 works inspired by the UN sustainability goals. Join us for art, jazz, and drinks.

Due to a conflict with a home World Series game, this event has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 9th. Go Phillies!

Event Summary

The world is making progress toward Goal 7, with encouraging signs that energy is becoming more sustainable and widely available. Access to electricity in poorer countries has begun to accelerate, energy efficiency continues to improve, and renewable energy is making impressive gains in the electricity sector.

Nevertheless, more focused attention is needed to improve access to clean and safe cooking fuels and technologies for 3 billion people, to expand the use of renewable energy beyond the electricity sector, and to increase electrification in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Energy Progress Report provides global dashboard to register progress on energy access, energy efficiency and renewable energy. It assesses the progress made by each country on these three pillars and provides a snapshot of how far we are from achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals targets.

Join us for a celebration of the world’s efforts in working toward more sustainable energy, and a reminder of the urgent need to continue this crucial work.
